CityWeeds is a trauma-informed food business that strives to eliminate food deserts and improve the health, wellness, and independence of Baltimore City residents through the growing and selling of microgreens and cold-pressed juices. CityWeeds was founded by Dominic “Farmer” Nell in 2016 after the tragic murder of Freddie Gray and the Baltimore Uprising. These events encouraged Farmer Nell to reflect on the distress faced by city residents and the healing needed in his West Baltimore neighborhood. Farmer Nell’s vision for CityWeeds is to feed and heal the community by growing food out of vacant lots.
